Bachelor of Science in Nursing
BSN students begin in the first year of study to integrate nursing theory and concepts with knowledge from the college core areas of communicating in the world, global society and its culture, the human experience, scientific literacy, and analysis. This evidence-based knowledge integration, which continues throughout the four years of study, fosters the development of professional attributes and skills to establish humanistic caring relationships through an understanding of the values of both the College and the Department of Nursing. The department offers experiences locally, nationally and abroad. BSN students use the nursing process to critically think through nursing situations to achieve the nursing aims of health promotion, health maintenance, and health restoration. The central focus at all levels of the BSN curriculum is the patient centered health capacity. The client emphasis on the individual, family, and/or the community depends on the level of study in the BSN curriculum. Students build nursing skills and recognition of external and internal environmental forces to assist the patient to achieve desired health capacity. There are no college courses or pre-requisites required to be eligible to begin the nursing program at Wesley College. The mission and the philosophy of the nursing department aligns with the values of the College.

The Wesley College Department of Nursing offers an RN to Master of Science in Nursing degree (MSN) designed for the Registered Nurse (RN) with or without a Bachelor’s degree. Students enrolled in the program will have the opportunity to continue their personal and professional growth through liberal arts and science courses and graduate level nursing education. The course of study emphasizes the Department of Nursing’s belief that a strong foundation in liberal studies is essential to professional nursing practice. Concomitantly, the program prepares the nurse for advanced practice in a wide variety of health care settings to promote and maintain high level wellness and to improve health care delivery in a rapidly changing society. This RN to MSN is an innovative and creative option that prepares the registered nurse whose basic credential is the hospital school diploma, the collegiate Associate Degree in Nursing or the Collegiate Baccalaureate Degree in Nursing, to assume an advanced practice role as a clinical nurse specialist.
